DuBuque, Chicago district airport engine-ei' of the civil aeronautics authority, told members of the aviation committee of the Chamber of Commerce Friday. The aviation committee, headed by Chairman W. B. Hathorn, already set to begin circulating petitions asking the city council to call an election, conferred with the airport engineer on last minute details. Mr. DuBuque in discussing the matter stated that this is the ideal time to launch the project because: 1. With a modern airport Mason City is almost certain to be made a. stopping place on a projected north and south airline. Other benefits also will accrue In the forthcoming rapid development of air activities. 2. The government is urging airplane manufacturers to move their plants away from the coast. If Mason City lias an airport and other air activities it may be in iine for one of these factories. Mr. DuBuque was emphatic in pointing out that Mason City has several favorable 'conditions for attracting a factory. In the first place, he said, the city is welt equipped with construction materials industries. The terrain surrounding the city is ideal for flying. The city is the right distance away from heavily congested areas. In Coast Cities Most of the airplane factories at the present time are situated in coast cities. The movement of the industry inland and the prospects of greatly enlarging the industry to meet the demands for military and civil purposes provides an unprecedented incentive for doing everything - possible to bring an airplane factory to Mason City, it was opinted out. The statement of Thomas F. Ryan, III, executive vice president of the Mid-Continent Airlines, on his recent visit to Mason City.'that his line would like to stop in Mason City on a projected run between the Twin Cities and Kansas City is another argument for proceeding \vith the airport, it was stated. The Mid-Continent already operates a line from St. Paul to Huron, Sioux Falls, Omaha, Kansas City and Tulsa, Okla. Filed Application The Mid-Continent already has filed an application for a certificate of convenience and necessity with the civil aeronautics authority at Washington for the Twin City-Kansas City run that would include a stop in Mason City. The Chamber of Commerce committee has two proposed sites in mind and at the meeting Friday discussed hangar and runway construction. Hanson and Waggoner, Mason City architects, are preparing a miniature layout of an airport and hangars, similar_ to the southside fire station model. The Chamber of Commerce committee petition that will be circulated next week will ask the city council to call an election to vote on a bond issue sufficient to launch the project It is expected that federal funds will be available for part of the expense o£ constructing the runways and necessary buildings on the field. FINED 510, COSTS Walter O'Niel, city, was fineci S10 and costs Friday by Police Judge Morris Laird on a charge of intoxication. O'Niel was arrested at 12:45 o'clock Friday morning at 320 South Federal avenue.

DUBUQUE District Airport Engineer Civil Aeronautics AuthorHy Mason Cityans Help Refugee Flee Europe A direct result of Hitler's absorption of Czecho-Slovakia was felt in Mason City this week, when several local persons donated $125 to furnish passage for a Jewish refugee in the Czech country to find a haven in the Chaco region of Argentina, in South America, it was revealed Friday. This Jewish man, a well-to-do manufacturer until Germany's dictator marched into the Masaryk-built democracy of Czechoslovakia, wrote u friend in the city on March 14 -- the day on which Reichsfuehrer Hitler's storm troopers ended the central European democracy, and in his letter is apparent a premonition of the disaster about to befall his native country. The letter follows: "The situation is changing rapidly. It's without use to write you about the political events here. These last days are full o£ an enormous excitement. At the time you'll have got my letter, who can say what it will be. The future seems to be as dark as possible. Goes to Palestine "The brother here has been also obliged to give up his shop. My nephew I mentioned in one letter, started the day before yesterday with an illegal passport for Palestine. My brother has the intention to follow in a few weeks, and I'm much afraid about that. It's impossible in the ease of such an illegal voyage to take any means with (only 200 kronens--$5). '"And to complete all the misery, the family has a great difficulty with the stay here in consequence of a lately published law. I don't know what to do. Your ear is so encouraging and kind. I'm trying to learn as much as possible in baking ko- lash, cakes, strudel and tarts and will learn, if possible, cooking. But there is another difficulty. I don't know how long I'll be waiting my hour for the permit: it is said one year. On the American consulate there it is impossible to get any real information; they have given me only vague replies. "Without an important (I think political) recommendation to the consul directly from your country, I don't see no way whatever to accelerate the getting of the permit for immigration. "Very, Very Dangerous" "What's with tiie Quaker's camp? May I ask you it it would be possible to get an invitation for- the camp, only with the secret intention to come in this way sooner, rd be glad if my brother and I could start soon. If not possible for TIS both, I'd be liappy. if only the brother could go alone at first. I'm much fearing for him if he would really take the illegal voyage for Palestina. This is a very, very dangerous thing, both voyage and the stay in the country without permit. But up today he hasn't another real possibility." March 24 a cable was received from the Jewish man. who told his friend that if S125 in cash were forwarded to a certain address in Argentina, he could obtain leave from the country which now is part of the third reich. Friends of the refugee hastily met and gathered that amount, then sent it to the address in Argentina. They now are awaiting further word from the refugee, who if he has not fallen victim to one of the nazt forms of terrorism, should at the present time be on the high seas, enroute to a new home, a new life, a new outlook. ettons for Mason City Airport ALGONA KIWANIS CLUB PRESENTS LOCAL PROGRAM Music, Comedy and · Dance Numbers Are Enjoyed Here Thirty-three members of the Algona Kiwanis club visited Mason City Thursday night, and provided a program of music, comedy, dance and versatility, with a general air of hilarity predominating at the meeting, held in the Hotel Hanford.
